An ocean between us
4 guests and a Webex link
A Scottish dream wedding
This is a story of love and endurance. It is a story made possible only by the Divine’s touch. Sandeep and I met a little under two years ago and have been in a long-distance relationship since. It has not been the easiest ride with many people opposing our union from the very start, however somehow the love we had for each other saw us through. After much difficultly, we fixed a date to get married in Malaysia on the 6th May 2020. All was set to go, and then enters COVID-19 into our world. Our wedding, like so many others had to be postponed and furthermore due to travel restrictions, I was stranded in London away from Sandeep indefinitely. I did not know when I’ll see Sandeep again and it was by far the most difficult period of the story so far.
One day, I couldn’t take it anymore and broke down telling my dad that I feel like there is a huge mountain in front of me and I just don’t know how to climb over it. He said ‘Don’t go over it, just go around it!’. These words together with Sandeep’s encouragement and strength, I decided to call every council in the country requesting them to marry us. It was not easy as most if not all but one, listened to our story and finally agreed to marry us under special circumstances.
Miraculously, we were granted the opportunity to marry outside a small music venue in Scotland under a tiny stoned archway with 4 guests present, a Webex link filled with friends and family watching us as we make the most important declaration of our lives. The ceremony was like nothing I’ve witnessed before and no doubt had the same divine presence which has been following us throughout this story.
Moral: Don’t try and go over the mountain, go around it! There is always a way. So, here is to love, endurance and most importantly Choices! Cheers 🥂
